Rejected petition Legalisation of cannabis for medicinal and recreational use

Cannabis should be legalised in the UK for medicinal and recreational use. It has now been removed from Schedule IV of the 1961 Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs. It has many positive therapeutic effects which involves the well known cannabinoids - THC and CBD and other beneficial cannabinoids.

More details

Cannabis has been used on earth as a naturally therapeutic plant for over 27 million years. It then got made illegal in the UK in 1928 due to its pushed view on the fact it was a 'dangerous drug'. It has hundreds of medicinal benefits as it has over 700 active constituents including THC, CBD and other cannabinoids that work with our bodies. There is no reason for this law to still stand. Legalise cannabis.
